A low-cost, tiny home that provides everything you need. A boat made of recycled plastic and flip-flops. Land use tracked by space-based tools. Vaccine-delivery drones… As the planet marks World Creativity and Innovation Day, UN News selected their favourite ideas, across several sectors of 2019, to light up the way to a better future for all.
International days are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity. The existence of international days predates the establishment of the United Nations, but the UN has embraced them as a powerful advocacy tool. We also mark other UN observances.
